Long chain diol index and paleotemperature reconstruction for IODP Hole 306-U1313C, supplement to: Naafs, Bernhard David A; Hefter, Jens; Stein, Ruediger (2012): Application of the novel long chain diol index (LDI) palaeothermometer to the early Pleistocene (MIS 96). Organic Geochemistry, 49, 83-85

Bernhard David A Naafs, Jens Hefter & Ruediger Stein
Recently, a new organic geochemical paleothermometer based on the relative abundance of long chain alkyl 1,13- and 1,15-diols, the so-called long chain diol index (LDI), was proposed. Because of its novelty, the proxy has not been reported for sediments older than 43 ka. We therefore determined the LDI for 14 sediment samples from the early Pleistocene between 2.49 and 2.41 Ma, comprising Marine Isotope Stage (MIS) 98 to 95, and converted the values to sea...
